About:  The true story of Olympic-wrestling brothers (Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo) and their dark and a-hole sponsor (Steve Carell).

Release Date: 14/11

Thoughts: Channing Tatum in a wrestling suit! But on a less shallow level, Steve Carell makes for a very intriguing bad guy.

 

The Imitation Game:

The Imitation Game Movie New Pic (2)

Stars: Benedict Cumberbatch, Kiera Knightly

About:  English mathematician and logician, Alan Turing, helps crack the Enigma code during World War II.

Release Date: 21/11

Thoughts:  Cumberbatch is at his best when he’s at his smartest. See, Sherlock.

 

Wild:

Wild_612x407

Stars: Reese Witherspoon

About: A chronicle of one woman’s 1,100-mile solo hike undertaken as a way to recover from a recent catastrophe.

Release Date: 5/12

Thoughts: It’s been a while since weve seen Reese do anything this gritty (have we ever?) I think her performance in Wild will get her an Oscar nod fo sho. Also I think she is a drug addict for a we bit there which is always interesting.

 

Big Eyes:

Big-Eyes-Movie (1)

Stars: Amy Adams, Christopher Waltz, Krysten Ritter

About: A drama centered on the awakening of the painter Margaret Keane, her phenomenal success in the 1950s, and the subsequent legal difficulties she had with her husband, who claimed credit for her works in the 1960s.

Stars: Jack O’Connell (Directed by Angelina Jolie written by the Coen brothers)

About: A chronicle of the life of Louis Zamperini, an Olympic runner who was taken prisoner by Japanese forces during World War II.

Release Date: 25/12

Thoughts: If you have read the book you will know how epic this tale is. If you haven’t you are likely going to think that the story is far to overly dramatic to be real. I’m thinking an Oscar nod to both the Director and the Star.

Inherent Vice:

About:  In 1970, drug-fueled Los Angeles detective Larry “Doc” Sportello investigates the disappearance of a former girlfriend.
